Marianne - United States - Official Evaluator

I have been interested in web design and digital art since 1997 when I first delved into the www. It was then that I decided I had to be a part of the internet and all it has to offer. I studied web design for a short time, only to discover that graphics and digital art interested me more. After years of working in the legal field, I decided to become a ‘stay-at-home-mother’ to my youngest son, and web graphics soon became a passion for me.

Note from Ian. Marianne was the designer of one of our Gold Award website winners. Her design skills are self evident and we are very pleased to have her a part of our team.

The personal stuff:

I am the proud wife of a United States Sailor, a mother of 3 children and currently reside in Pennsylvania. In my spare time, I do custom work from building websites to designing logos for both commercial and personal use.

Sandra - From: Green Bay--Wisconsin--USA - Official Evaluator

I have worked with many types of computers before they even were made available and used by the general public. I may not be the greatest professional at this but; I do know my way around computers and know what I like to see in a site. Poetry, art and music are the fields in which my interest rests in my spare time.
In the past I have had the great honor to hold the position of Bayport Art Club President for four consecutive years. I have been honored for my work with the Boys and Girls Club of America in the past and enjoy seeing young people use their potential to be the best that they can be. I have helped many people on the web with graphics and award programs and have met many terrific people along the way. I no longer have the time to do graphics for others, but, it was a very rewarding feeling to be of help to others when they needed it.

Jesse - California - United States - Official Evaluator

I have been designing websites and graphics since the late 90’s. I was raised by two loving and wonderful grown up hippies and resided in northern California until I graduated high school. I then sought my BA in Art Studio at the University of California Santa Barbara, and, after a long and sweet five and a half years of hard work, finally graduated. I have been living in Santa Barbara ever since, and have enjoyed every minute of it. My “serious” job consists of being the webmaster at a local marketing and distributing company. I am also co-designer of Airtight Internet Services with my father, based in northern California. During my spare time, I am busy doing freelance web design and graphic design for my clients and friends, as well as hands on arts and craft, hiking, camping, swimming, and fostering my green thumb for plant life to be greener. I am living happily in love with my girlfriend of four years, and we are making a move back to northern California to be close to family and hopefully expand the father/son web design business. I have loved life thus far, and have worked hard and played hard to get where I am (with some help from family and friends). That is the only way to do it.
